7:03 am
good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> many of you are in the west are the ones enjoying warmer than normal weather. the eastern united states is facing more dangerous cold. high temperatures today in many cities will struggle to reach double digits. >> boston will see a high of 16 on top of more than a foot of snow. it will be 19 in cleveland, 18 in st. louis, 9 in chicago, and only 0 today in the twin cities. nina moini of wcco is out in the cold. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and clarissa, and good morning to our viewers in the west. minnesota on track to have its coldest winter in more than 30 years for the second day here. several school districts here are closed because of dangerous wind chill levels that came in late last night and are expected to be around until about noon today. the temperatures were averaging 35 to 45 below zero throughout parts of minnesota and wisconsin. the air is so frigid that exposed skin could freeze in as
7:04 am
few as five minutes. leaving schools to shutter for the day in an effort to keep people indoors and safe. still, drivers across the region braved dangerous conditions. black ice and snow blowing across the roadways caused hundreds of traffic accidents around the state. visibility was so low that some roadways were closed. this morning, crews will have to reassess how they're going to treat our slick roads, because when it gets this cold, some of the chemicals they use simply do not work, and we are expecting similar conditions yet again come monday. back to you, charlie, clarissa. >> nina moini in minneapolis. and the icy weather knocked out power to a packed commuter train in connecticut. that left some 200 passengers stranded without heat for two hours last night. the spokesman said it was still warm enough inside to keep riders from freezing. this morning, forecasters predict the cold weather pattern could stick around for the rest of the month. chief meteorologist eric fisher
7:05 am
of our boston station wbz is with us. eric, good morning. >> good morning, clarissa and charlie. good morning, everybody. certainly a pattern that's stuck and should stick around for a while. this is not the type you want to stick around. 36 below zero in minneapolis. 22 below zero in chicago. and that is dangerous, at times life threatening, cold. and wind chill advisories and warnings for 31 states now. widespread, much like what we saw earlier on in january. as we look forward through the rest of the month, repeated outbreaks of cold working through. this goes on until at least february, if not deeper into the month. and we take a look at the next storm potential, and another clipper starts to come down this weekend. this will spread snow. it doesn't look major, but chicago, already seeing its fourth snowiest january on record, so that's more in the bucket. this moves over toward the northeast on sunday night into monday. and it doesn't look as big as the last one, but more snow probably not what the folks are looking for. >> thanks, eric. the snow brought a dress rehearsal to super bowl xlviii.
7:06 am
in the next half hour, we'll look at the readiness for a snow bowl with league commissioner roger goddell. this morning, u.s. intelligence is assessing the new potential risk of a tower attack at the winter olympics in sochi, russia. the white house describes an up tick in threats. >> the pentagon is offering help to russia that could include sending devices to stop roadside bombs. cbs news national security analyst juan zarate is a former advisor to president george w. bush, and good morning. >> good morning, charlie, clarissa. >> what sort of assistance -- what are the russians now saying in terms of their willingness to accept assistance? >> the russians are very prideful. they want to put on a successful olympics, and do it on their terms. as the olympics approach, they're more willing to accept assistance. from what i'm hearing, they're scrambling to accept some of the assistance the u.s. is offering. you mentioned the department of defense offering technology to disrupt improvised devices.
7:07 am
and the question is, will the russians accept it? >> at this stage, it seems enough damage has been done by the terrorists ramping up the rhetoric, even if there isn't an attack, it's been devastating to president putin. >> well, absolutely. president putin has personalized the security and success of the olympics and in many ways the terrorists want to disrupt it. but psychologically they can disrupt it, with actual attacks or the threat of attacks or even hoaxes. we've seen that already, and you're going to see a ramp-up of the kinds of threats as we approach the olympics. >> do they have a different attitude about the security than we do? >> they do. they are ruthless and use mass force, and you're going to see about 60,000 security personnel at sochi. that's going to be locked down. you're going to see disruptions. you've seen reports of terror suspects killed in raids and hearing reports of shoot-outs in dagestan and the north caucuses, just about every day now. >> do we know more about the black widows? >> the russians know there are at least three, in particular, that they're looking for one that may be in sochi.
7:08 am
these are the female suicide bombers that present such a threat and have demonstrated ability to not only get inside security coordinates and bring down planes and attack metro trains. >> all right, juan zarate, thank you so much. we're learning of an arrest in a famous 35-year-old robbery at kennedy airport. you may ref the lufthansa case. in 1978, it was the largest cash robbery in u.s. history. sources tell cbs news that the fbi arrested several alleged members of the bonanno crime family this morning. one is charged in the theft of $5 million and nearly $1 million worth of jewels. the rest face other charges including murder. this morning, a government advisory panel wants president obama to stop the collection of americans' phone data. it calls the practice illegal and ineffective. the privacy and civil rights oversight board releases a report later today. it says the national security agency surveillance program, quote, raises serious threats to privacy and civil liberties, and
7:09 am
the panel wants the nsa to throw away all of its phone records. but two of its five members say they disagreed with the reports' conclusions. the president may discuss nsa surveillance in tuesday's state of the union speech. a cbs news poll out this morning shows 46% of americans approve of the president's job performance. that number rose slightly in the past month. 47% say they still disapprove, and 61% of americans believe the country is on the wrong track. we're hearing for the first time for the wife of a man who was shot and killed in a florida movie theater. she watched her husband gunned down after he was texting. as mark strassmann reports, she now calls her life unbearable. mark, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, clarissa. nicole oulson spoke for only a minute, but in that short amount of time, she managed to convey pain about her loss. she work a pink cast around her left hand, a reminder of the day her husband was fatally shot in front of her. >> in the blink of an eye, my whole world just got shattered
7:10 am
into a million pieces. and now i'm left trying to pick them up and put them all back together. and it's so hard, and it's so unbearable. >> reporter: on january 1 3g9, the couple went to see the movie "lone survivor." during the previews, chad oulson sent texts to the baby-sitter watching their 22-month-old daughter alexis. that texting irstated curtis reeves, a 71-year-old retired police captain sitting behind the couple. reeves first complained to the manager and then returned to the inside of the theater to argue with oulson. witnesses told police that oulson threw a bag of popcorn at reeves, who admitted he pulled out a handgun and shot oulson once in the chest. that bullet also struck nicole oulson in the hand. she reportedly was trying to shield her husband. >> me and my husband didn't get a date night very often, much less a whole day to spend together, so i was just so excited and looking forward to spending the day with the love my life. >> reporter: reeves was arrested for second-degree murder.
7:11 am
his lawyer did not return "cbs this morning's" request for comments, but last week he told a judge that reeves was only trying to defend himself. he could potentially use florida's controversial stand your ground law. >> alleged victim attacked him, struck him with an object, which resulted in the gunfire. >> reporter: yesterday, oulson's lawyer said they'll oppose bail for reeves. >> everyone with a cell phone is at risk. i mean, you never know when this guy's going to go off again. >> reporter: chad oulson was a 43-year-old navy veteran who served in operation: desert storm. he didn't have life insurance, and a memorial fund has been set up to help his family. >> still trying to recover from the shock, and my main focus is on my daughter alexis. >> reporter: reeves has a bail hearing scheduled for february 5th. nicole oulson says her little daughter doesn't really understand what happened, but she does, though, know her father's gone. >> thanks, mark. this morning, iran's new president says reaching out to the rest of the world is a
7:12 am
priority that includes the united states. margaret brennan is in switzerland where rouhani spoke today. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, clarissa and charlie. we could call it a high-profile pitch. rouhani is the first president of iran to come here in a decade, and he told a roomful of executives that iran is open for business. it's an attempt to capitalize on the nuclear deal with the west, which gives iran limited relief from sanctions. in a speech today, rouhani called it the biggest achievement since the 1979 islamic revolutions, and while the deal only lasts six months, he says it opens the door to have normal relations with europe and possibly the u.s. >> translator: therefore, what we have achieved is not nearly a temporary agreement on a specific issue, but a preview to future agreements and engagement. >> reporter: the deal lifts
7:13 am
restrictions on the auto, oil, and metals markets, but all that can be reversed if iran doesn't follow through with its promise to halt and destroy its stockpile of highly enriched uranium, which the west fears could be used to build a nuclear bomb. by meeting with oil executives, rouhani is essentially asking them to bet that a permanent deal could be possible, but might be a leap of faith, though, because the white house warned this week that any one or any business who violates the remaining sanctions is going to face very harsh consequences. >> thanks, margaret. this morning, protest leaders in ukraine are threatening to go on the attack. there is no sign of compromise. charlie d'agata is watching the mounting violence. >> reporter: over the past four days, the bad situation in kiev got much, much worse. this morning, there's a tense standoff and the clock is ticking on a 24-hour deadline spent yesterday by opposition
7:14 am
leaders and the government to grant snap elections or face the wrath of the crowd. [ gunfire ] >> reporter: thick black smoke hung over the streets of kiev at morning light. months of largely peaceful demonstrations have erupted into whole new levels of violence. workers at this makeshift clinic said five people have been killed. the government puts the figure at two, confirming they died of gunshot wounds. the latest round in ukraine's knock-down, drag-out fight began after the government imposed strict new laws effectively outlawing all forms of protests, designed to douse demonstrations, they, in fact, had the opposite effect. igniting a serious backlash. riot police fought running street battles with defiant protester, beating the unlucky ones unable to get away. opposition leaders met with the leader and issued the ultimatum. pull back the forces and call new elections, or face the consequences.
7:15 am
leading opposition figure, the former heavyweight boxing champion, urged the government to give in and anti-government figures also told the crowds to prepare to go on the march. even if the price is a bullet to the head. now, all of the trouble began months ago after the government pulled back from a deal with the european union under pressure from russia. the u.s. has responded by revoking the visas of un crakra crackdown. >> thank you. voluntary evacuations overnight near a biodiesel plant in new albany, mississippi, and an explosion sent flames towering into the sky. no one is hurt, the cause of the blast is under investigation. three years ago, the company was fined for failing to perform inspections. super bowl xlviii is ten days away, but off-the-field drama continues for richard sherman.
7:16 am
newly released audio clip from sunday's playoff victory revealed the moments before sherman's controversial postgame rant. jeff gore has the audio. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: charlie, good morning. i don't know if you've seen richard sherman's postgame interview, you have likely heard about it. nobody knew what sherman said to 49ers wide receiver michael crabtree until this. it turns out the nfl had them miked up, aired last night on "showtime's inside the nfl." >> and picked off! >> reporter: seconds after this play stilled seattle's victory on sunday, richard sherman sprinted over to michael crabtree. hell of a game, he said. crabtree then shoving sherman in the face. the raw emotion spilled over into a postgame interview for the ages.
7:17 am
>> well, i'm the best corner in the game. when you have people like crap tree, that's the result you're going to get. don't you ever talk about me! >> reporter: the rant, which lasted less than a minute, dominated postgame headlines, and lit up twitter with many slamming sherman. >> we're talking about football here, and, you know, a lot of people took it further than football. >> reporter: on wednesday, the 25-year-old said he was surprised by the backlash. >> maybe it was misdirected, maybe, you know, things may have been immature, things could have been worded better. but this is on a football field. i wasn't -- i wasn't committing any crimes, you know, doing anything illegal. i was showing passion after a football game. >> let's go! >> reporter: sherman said his outburst was only a small part of who he is. the stanford graduate, a native of compton, california, said he was most hurt by people calling him a thug. >> the only reason it bothers me is because it seems like it's the accepted way of calling somebody the "n" word nowadays. i know some thugs, and they know
7:18 am
i'm the furtherest thing from a thug. >> good game, man. love you. love you, baby. come on. >> reporter: this dispute between sherman and crabtree dates back to a charity event hosted by larry fitzgerald. sherman wrote that crabtree said something to him, and he has not said exactly what. the seahawks and richard sherman show arrive in new jersey this sunday. >> we can't wait. thanks, jeff. >> all right. it's time to show you the morning's headlines from around the globe.

7:32 am
league is not in question, the health of its players is. concussions suffered on the field continued to plague the game. just last week a judge questioned whether that would be enough to cover all the claims. then there's the upcoming super bowl xlviii in new jersey just across the river from new york city and the need to keep everyone safe. 4,000 officers from multiple law enforcement agentcies will be o hand to protect the big game and fans will be scrutinized at the gates. >> walk-through detectors, metal detectors, pat-down searches, canine keys, and x-ray equipment. >> security isn't the only concern. it will be the first open-air cold h weather super bowl in history. if january is any indication, winter promises to play a prominent role on the field. >> roger goodell and jeff
7:33 am
immelt, welcome. great to have you here. >> good to be with you. >> we want to talk about the matchup, weather contingencies, security, all of that. but let me begin with what brings the two of you together, the effort to do something about concussions. how did this start? >> look. i've been a friend of rogers and he's done a lot with the nfl over the years. i think brain science is a place where ge's invested heavily through our health care business. it's bigger than just the nfl. it has to do with alzheimer's disease, traumatic brain injury military kids are experiencing when they come back, and certainly concussions are a big part of that. we felt that there would be an opportunity to unleash the technical mite of the country to be a part of this. the nfl is a great convener. it's great brand. when they do something, people listen. so roger and i started talking about this about a year ago and we made it happen last march. so far, so good.
7:34 am
we're getting a ton of great ideas how to treat, how to diagnose and that's the power of two great brands. >> what did you make happen? >> whe created two challenges. today we dpierng to announce the winner of the first challenge. what it is is the ability to better diagnose concussions. hopefully what comes out of it is to better advance science so we can diagnose and then get into treatment. there are great treatments there. >> as nfl commissioner, this is your number one priority. >> yes, it is. player health and safety is important but really what inspires jeff and i here is we can make changes in all of the military. these are injuries of not only injuries but also diseases. >> you say this is a major concern and i saw some others
7:35 am
are on the board. >> darfa has been a big funder. when we started talking about cancer, i think of the progress we've made. the brain is largely on study. when we talk about the challenge, it's better pictures to really see minor concussions, biomarkers i a study of how the brain's doing, is it eahealing. one of the things is having a sideline tool to diagnose in ten minutes if somebody has a concussion. when i was a kid, the doctor would put his hands like this and look into your eyes. was the diagnosis. so it's a fast diagnosis, progression of disease, spotting what's actually gone on in the brain. alzheimer's is going to use the same stuff.
7:36 am
the military as well. >> let me go to the settlement, the $65 million settlement. the judge rejected it. so what now?& >> she didn't approve it at the time. she's going through everything to make sure that the money that's in the fund, in the settlement will be sufficient for the needs so that's appropriate. we will continue to work with her and do the best we can. >> are you worried about it falling apart? >> both sides want to continue to have this and we believe it's the right thing because we can get money to the people who need it mootly and we think that's the initiative. we think the funds in there are necessary and efficient to handle it. >> what did you make of president obama in the "new yorker" interview when he said he wouldn't let his son play pro
7:37 am
football? >> males are living longer, three years and living to a higher age. there's a lot of misinformation out there, but our players, we want to continue to do what we can to help them when they're playing the game, when they leave the game, but our players are doing great. we'll also continue do more. lit me turn to the super bowl and what might happen this week. >> the fun part. >> you know what's going to happen this week. >> is it going to happen on the 1st or the 2nd. >> and are you watching the weather channel. >> contingencies, expectations, et cetera. >> whenever you put on an event like this, you have to be prepared for contingency. when playing outdoors, you have to realize weather will be a factor. we want to make sure the fans
7:38 am
are safe and warm and we even done in that area a lots to hem them. the community in this region has done an extraordinary job. >> they know how to handle it. >> roger, i heard you're going to be sitting outside. can i have your indoor seat? is that true? >> yeah. i want to experience it. i want to experience it. >> you don't want to watch a game with her because she constantly takes pictures of you rather than the game. >> there would be hundreds of people with their shirts off. i will not have my shirt off. >> a couple of things about security. will there be concerns? >> it is always a concern for us wchl don't have have any reason to have a concern but we take every precaution.
7:39 am
when you have this many people coming you have to watch for their sixty. >> do you have a favorite? >> you know, russell wilson's father played college football with me. harry wilson. i loved harry. he unfortunately died. everyone who knew harry is a russell wilson fan, so i have to confess to rooting for the seahawks. >> i have to ask you about richard sherman. when you watched this were you cringing or cheering because it's certainly brought a lot of attention to the nfl. what were you thinking? >> you know, it's an emotional game and you see a young man come off the field and he's pumped up. no, i'm not cheering for that because he is such a great young man. he does well off the field, obviously on field and i want
7:40 am
him to reflect the best of himself. he took a little bit away from the team. that's what he said yesterday and i think that's an interesting comment and it's fair. >> a couple of things changing in the nl. number one, the extra point. you want to take away the extra point because? >> no. the issue here, charlie, we want to take -- it's an extra point over 500. so it's almost automatic. the question is can we make it a little more difficult to achieve and one concept is could you take the kick and say the kick is out rm you automatically get seven points but if you want to run or pass, you can get an extra pass and if you fail, you lose a point. you might get six. it's one of many, by the way. >> one point. i know it doesn't happen often but it can make the difference. can we talk about the possibility of "thursday night football." if you were still running nfc,
7:41 am
would you still -- >> one of the things that makes a broadcast or broadcaster is to aggregate. you know, i would choke on the price because -- >> do you see it happening, roger, yes, or no? >> we had 13 games on thursday night last year. >> yeah, i know that. >> we're going to continue to do that. there's a lot of interest in our media partnership. >> may i see bsf. just throwing it out there. thank you, commissioner. thank you, jeff. jay leno says he is not going to retire but he's giving up "the tonight show." how he's making way for jimmy fallon.
